    “Excellent accommodation really enjoyed our stay, it gave the impression it was detached and on it's own when it is a semi.”

    A washing machine would have been handy. But it was one of the cleanest and comfortable places we have stayed in. Had a great time.

A quaint, countryside cottage, emanating a homely and welcoming aura from which to create everlasting memories with your loved ones, 1 Oakleigh is a terrific family holiday home to base your exploration of North Yorkshire.

Resting on the fringes of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and boasting spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, this rural retreat makes a wonderful base at any time of year.

With ample social spots for you to all gather together or to sneak off to a quiet spot to yourself, this spacious holiday let is perfectly suited to your family escape; spend some relaxing time to yourself with a good book in hand whilst snuggling into the sofa of the sitting room beside the open fire, a bright and airy spot from which you can truly soak in your surroundings out of the impressive window, or gather together in the dining room, also hosting an open fire, it makes a wonderful spot to come together and toast to your terrific holiday moments.

The kitchen/diner makes a less formal spot to spend time together, here you can enjoy a hearty meal in the mornings, the surrounding utensils and appliances being perfect for all of your self-catering requirements, or choose to sit out on your private patio and dine alfresco, the rolling countryside views making a truly tranquil backdrop.

When each fun-filled day comes to an end, you can find three inviting bedrooms settled across the two floors; on the ground floor sits a single room, equipped with its own en-suite shower room, it makes the perfect escape for the teenager of the group, while up on the first floor you can find a further single with impressive countryside views and a lovely spot to sit with your morning coffee, while the master bedroom consists of a double bed with an equally charming interior.

Serving the bedrooms is the sparkling family bathroom, where you can choose from a refreshing shower or a rejuvenating soak to begin your day of adventure.

About the location


Malham 6 miles; Skipton 17 miles; Kendal 25 miles.

The bustling market town of Settle lies at the south west rim of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, nestled beside the largest outcrop of limestone in Britain - a region of scars, cliffs, caves and potholes - amongst some of the most picturesque scenery in North Yorkshire. Tuesday is market day in Settle, when the square is filled with stalls offering a wide variety of crafts and goods. The market place is surrounded by local businesses, the centre being dominated by The Shambles, an historic three storey building with shops on two levels and houses above, and the Town Hall. There is a good selection of restaurants and pubs and a public swimming pool. The Victoria Hall has entertainment and other activities such as folk nights throughout the year. The famous Settle-Carlisle Railway crosses some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery in the country. Natural attractions such as Malham Cove and Gordale Scar are within easy reach, as are the nearby Dales towns of Skipton and Malham. Settle is in the midst of excellent walking country and is a good base for touring the Dales, the Lake District and the Forest of Bowland.
